Plans for New Zealand's largest hotel unveiled

New Zealand is set to gain a 650-room mega hotel following the multi-million dollar refurbishment of Cordis, Auckland.

Hong Kong-based Langham Hospitality Group announced new expansion plans that will make the upscale hotel the largest in New Zealand.


Set to be completed by late 2020 with a total of 650 rooms and suites, the recently re-branded hotel - formerly the 411-room The Langham - will reinforce its position as the city’s leading meetings and conference property with its new and extended event space, complemented with exciting food and beverage enhancements.

The new tower adjacent and connected to the existing hotel will house an additional 250 premium rooms and Cordis signature suites. The size of the new rooms will start from 32 square metres and the brand new Club Lounge will feature panoramic views of the harbour and Auckland Tower.

The hotel currently has event space in excess of 2,000 square metres, including the elegant Great Room which is one of New Zealand’s largest pillar-less ballrooms. There are plans to add a new event space of approximately 400 square metres that will offer natural light and multiple configurations, allowing for more flexibility in hosting special occasions and key events.

The award-winning Eight restaurant will feature an additional 60 seats. The hotel will also offer a new destination bar with courtyard and outdoor seating. 

“The successful repositioning of Cordis, Auckland combined with the economic growth and positive tourism outlook in New Zealand makes us confident that this is the right time for the owner of the hotel to commit its financial resources for the expansion of the hotel,” said Simon Manning, chief sales and marketing officer of Langham Hospitality Group. 

“We believe that the core essences of this new hotel brand, which are individual in style and design, reflective of its location and culture, and a provider of heartfelt service to our guests, will resonate well with corporate and leisure travellers to Auckland.”
